Railway Engine Driver is responsible for transporting passengers and goods in a train from one destination to another. Even though several staffs are employed for the safe transportation of passenger and goods, engine driver plays the crucial role by executing the important task. If the engine driver fails to execute his task, then the effort of all other staffs will go in vain. Therefore greater importance is given for the post of railway engine driver. Engine drivers are responsible for halting the train at different stations and reducing the train’s speed in the case of route diversion, following other trains or avoiding early arrival at the station. They control the acceleration and braking of the train.
